Rate This Remodel: Manhattan Beach fireplace

NoblefireplaceAfter moving to the U.S. from England several years ago, Kara Noble and her husband took on a 1940s Manhattan Beach bungalow that had been infused with way too much 1970s vibe.

Part of their challenge was updating a paint-specked brick fireplace (below).

    It desperately needs a mantle, otherwise looks good.

    Grand job. 10 out of 10. Could not have done a better job myself.

    I think it looks great! Not overly traditional or modern. Will work well with any decor. Good job.
